The University of Mississippi football is nationally ranked for the first time since 2016.
The new rankings comes less than 24 hours after the Rebels defeated Louisville on Monday in a 43-24 win.

Ole Miss was off on a good start on Monday after securing the victory under second-year head coach Lane Kiffin, who was recently out due to being positive for COVID-19.
Now that the Rebels are officially ranked, they will have a higher chance climbing up the polls this weekend when they face Austin Peay on Saturday.
